How did you guys go about learning how to build/solder?

Just practice. That's what I've done. I'll post a prelim pic of my diy later.

Simple switch box. Takes my sound card output and sends it either to speakers or to the 1/4" headphone jack for my headphones. Works well so far. I'll test it some more tomorrow.

That reminds me. I had it built several months ago, but somewhat recently I finally sourced a front panel for my O2 build. I got it for $8 shipped from aerohoff on diyaudio, so I was pretty pleased given that price. IIRC he also had a bamboo option. The acrylic kind of has its own charm versus the JDSLabs panel, so I thought it was worth showing.

Please excuse the lack of effort and quality on these cell phone pics: Default B2-080BK enclosure with acrylic panel, O2 build (Click to show)

A couple scratches on the panel itself are 'cuz I'm stupid; the input saying 12-16 VAC is a typo on somebody else's part

240
With flash activated, see the very inelegant grounding of the input to the chassis; a bare wire is held in place by the screw to a part next to the screwhole where I scratched off the anodizing

a little bit more. just need to wire up the main 120v power and make a star ground and it should be ready for testing. thumb.gif

Kit wise back end we have three Genesis amps, one series 2 SM100 (2X100), one Series 60 ST60 (60WX2) and Series 3 ST100 (2X100) cabling 4AWG power and earth with 12AW speaker and 10AWG sub speaker cable, Van Damme XLR for the RCAs and Amphernol connectors, source unit at the moment is a Kenwood KDC BT8100.

Sines a bit peaky from the poor battery new ones in which has smoothed it out nicely
